OnePlus 5T will ship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, unboxing reveals

An unboxing video surfaced on YouTube on November 15 showcasing the OnePlus 5T, ahead of its unveiling in New York on November 16.

The 15-minute clip highlights a number of the handset’s features; however, you’ll have a tough time understanding the presenter if you aren’t fluent in Spanish.

That doesn’t mean it’s completely useless, though. The video reveals that the OnePlus 5T will ship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat, instead of Android 8.0 Oreo.

But that’s all we can take away from it.

The OnePlus 5T is tipped to feature near-identical internals to the OnePlus 5, with the main difference being that it will have a larger 6-inch edge-to-edge display.

A pretty incremental upgrade, to say the least. But there’s a method in OnePlus’ madness: it’s hoping to charge the same for the OnePlus 5T as the OnePlus 5.

If that turns out to be the case, pricing for the OnePlus 5T will start at as little as £449 for the 65GB variant and max out at £499 for the evasive 128GB model.

OnePlus is scheduled to take the wraps off the OnePlus 5T at an event in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday. It should be up for pre-order the same day.
